We had the carb off the 302 for a rebuild, but we'll get it buttoned up, tuned, and ready for action.
Next, we've got black, but it's not a truck. This is a 1980 Dodge Mirada that came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for a complete restoration. It's not a car that you see in restoration shops often, but our customer bought this one brand new back in 1980 and has been driving it ever since. When he finally wore it out, he brought it to us to be brought back to better-than-new condition.
Our team tore it down, performed numerous sheet metal repairs, rebuilt the engine and suspension, and applied the slick black Axalta paint. It's going to be one of the nicest Miradas ever!
We had the tremendous honor of interviewing a true racing legend and outstanding American Bobby Unser at the 2016 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals this past weekend. A 3-time Indy 500 and 13-time Pikes Peak champion, he's a man who knows how to win both on the track and in life. Thanks to Mr. Unser for the time, The Brothers Collection for the opportunity, and the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals for the outstanding event! We'll post the video here soon.
